The Boot™

The Boot™ is a rectangular-shaped plate of 1/4 inch thick cold-rolled industrial steel. Each of its two steel pegs offer 8,000 pounds per square inch (psi) of tensile strength - totaling 16,000 psi when both pegs are fully engaged. The Boot™ weighs five pounds, offering tremendous strength to prevent entry from danger on the other side of your door.

Ideal for use in all school settings -- classrooms, school offices, building or cafeteria entry doors -- The Boot™ provides an additional level of security during a lockdown that until now has been missing.

Part of a patent-pending safety system

The Boot™ is part of a patent-pending safety system. It is the first safety device of its kind to furnish a patent-pending release mechanism. Using the Spin Key™, emergency personnel (law enforcement, fire or EMS personnel or designated school officials ) can quickly gain access to a space secured by The Boot™ following resolution of a crisis situation.
